>> i saw a lot of rain drops there on the windshield which is a welcome site. rob has been watching that closely. >> just enough to redo people's car washes. it would be nice to have measurable rainfall. we might see a little bit of that tomorrow. but right now, this is a typical view for this time of year. the fog over san francisco there. but what's atypical about the weather is how humid it is outside. dewpoint's way up. feel maybe more like south texas. close to 60 dewpoints. our temperatures right now in the 60s outside as we've been watching moisture coming in. some thunder earlier which was flaring up over the sierra, and the movement of the moisture from east to west right around sunset as peggy mentioned around san jose up to palo alto, we did have brief showers. right now a few more showers and there will be an opportunity for seeing more to come through tomorrow. right now you can see things tapering off a little bit. we'll see another wave of
moisture coming in late tonight into tomorrow. with the heating of the day, that may be will stabilize the area just a bit. monsoon moisture the big story here. we've got high pressure off to the east and this easterly wave skirting along the west flank of this high which brought in the showers for us this evening. you can see the moisture coming in out of the south and east. the flow will continue to push the moisture closer to the bay area for tonight which means overnight tonight, we'll have a chance of seeing showers and possibly a little bit more as we get into tomorrow afternoon. one thing you'll notice is it's pretty sticky outside right now. the temperatures around san jose 64 degrees. towards the tri-valley still 66 outside. so as this moisture comes in, it tends to trap some of the heat of the day. it does act a bit like a blanket. lows tonight in the 60s in some spots. for tomorrow, the next wave of clouds coming in during the morning. we will see a few sprinkles for the morning and then the interesting time will be around 2:00 in the afternoon.
out towards mount hamilton to the south and east of san jose and i think some of the north bay hilltops may see a brief chance of a that your. look at the sierra. once again tomorrow, that's where the core of the that your activity should be. tomorrow night, we'll see more of a southwesterly push aloft which should take the moisture and shove it off toward the east towards monday afternoon. there's still a chance of seeing showers for you tomorrow. you will notice the humidity with the passing showers possible at times. near 78 degrees tomorrow. san francisco the aid walk cog see sprinkles in the morning. temperatures in the 60s 11:00 in the morning. into the north bay, highs in the seventies around santa rosa tomorrow. slight chance of showers. very humid outside and those temperatures around tri-valley for tomorrow in the low 80s. and the temperature trend over the next five days looks to be a bit cooler with increased cloud cover and moisture for tomorrow. high pressure builds in. we lose the humidity and see 90
degrees temperatures possibly returning to the tri-valley by thursday. so the month of july doesn't see any measurable rainfall hopefully, we see a little bit coming our way for tomorrow. >> good news there. rob, thank you. >> henry wofford joining us from comcast sports net. we've got a couple of first place teams in the area. >> absolutely. peggy, terry, we've got great baseball going on right now. the giants went into the all-star break dazed and confused. similar to how my kids look when they hand me their report cards. they've come out with hot bats. highlights from the south beach. plus the a's 1989 squad was back in the bay saturday. could this year's team put on a good can show for the legends? stick around. sports is next.
